Thursday Hike: Native American Ceremonial Stonework at Wyassup Lake
Thursday November 3rd @ 9:00 am - 11:30 pm
This is another hike for those interested in seeing some examples of Native American ceremonial stonework in the area. Having occupied New England for over 12,000 years, it is not unexpected that the indigenous peoples would have left traces behind of their lives in New England’s woods. This hike will leave from the boat launch parking lot at Wyassup Lake in North Stonington. While the length of the hike is relatively short, most of it will be off-trail, so be sure to bring hiking sticks and suitable shoes. It is in moderately difficult terrain, and will take about 2.5 hours at a leisurely pace as we stop to see and discuss the stonework along the way. Rain cancels the hike, but if unsure of the weather, you can text my number the morning of the hike after 6:00 AM to see if it is a go. We will leave 145 Wyassup Lake Road at the boat launch area at 9:00 AM.
